Action C21 of the European programme for Cooperation in the field of Scientific and Technical Research (COST—http://www.cost.esf.org/) is dedicated to investigating urban ontologies for an improved communication in urban civil engineering projects. The Action, known informally as "Towntology", brings together a large and heterogeneous grouping from across Europe, whose interests range from construction to urban tourism and from transport infrastructure to resource visualisation. On 6-7 November 2006, in Geneva, the Action convened a successful workshop to address emerging issues in the field. This volume presents the contributions to that workshop, in many cases revised afterwards to capture some of the outcomes of discussion. Many of these contributions are from members of the Towntology group, but there are also contributions from other European researchers, and from researchers in the US. The volume represents a valuable overview of major current issues in the field of urban ontologies and encapsulates many useful and different approaches. We hope that it will serve not only as a worthy outcome of Action C21, but also as a valuable resource for a wide range of researchers. [less ▲]

El Subcomandante Marcos multiplica las referencias a Don Quijote de la Mancha en sus diversas estrategias para construir la imagen del EZLN y de sus enemigos. Esta contribución se concentrará en aquellos aspectos de su discurso que tienen que ver con la construcción del narrador y de los personajes en la medida en que se inspiren en el texto de Cervantes y que se hayan publicado entre 1994 y 1999. Se trata principalmente de los relatos que Marcos ha escrito acerca del escarabajo parlante Durito y que, en 1999, han sido reunidos en el libro Don Durito de la Lacandona (Chiapas, CIACH). Para poder entender las implicaciones de esta intertextualidad con la obra de Cervantes, cabe recordar también algunos aspectos básicos del discurso del EZLN y la problemática de las distintas voces en las filas zapatistas.

The objective of this study is to describe the eating representations and practices among 60 Roman high-school boys and girls through a complex methodology scheme that associates different techniques (word-association network, semi-directive interviews, test on the drawing of eating contexts, eating attitudes scale). As a result, it emerges that there are two differentiated models of relationship – depending on the sex and the socio-professional category the high-school pupils belong to – to eating and body. A protective model, typical among boys, shows an essentially pleasure-based relationship to eating and body. Eating contexts are lived in a conflicting (family) and play (friends) manner. This model seems to be a factor of preservation against eating pathology risks. On the contrary, a model that presents risks of eating disorders, typical among girls, shows a more complex relationship to eating and to body, characterized by normative aspects that girls shall conform to and/or transgress, according to the eating context. In this kind of relationship, the test on the drawing of the family eating context shows, among other things, the absence of any contact with food. [less ▲]

The methodologies that are used for analysing the fire behaviour of a structure that is subjected to a uniform thermal situation cannot be applied when the fire is localised. The concept of "zoning" can be applied: the structure is divided into several zones in which the situation is approximated as uniform. It is shown here that this division can lead to spurious forces in the structure. The structural code of the first author has been adapted in order to accommodate a continuous spatial variation of the fire environment. A series of uncoupled 2D thermal analyses is performed along the length of the beam finite elements and a series of ID thermal analyses is performed across the thickness of the shell finite elements. After a discussion of the concept and the particularities dictated by the continuous thermal environment, the methodology utilised is explained and is shown in an example consisting of a composite steel concrete car park subjected to a localised fire of the type given in Eurocode 1.

The paper explores the concept of the 'Center of the Main Interests' which plays a key role under the European Insolvency Regulation to allocation jurisdiction in international insolvency proceedings. The paper reviews the case law of courts of EU Member States and the first cases decided by the European Court of Justice in order to draw some preliminary lessons on how to identify where the Center of the Main Interests of the debtor lies.

Matrix metalloproteinases (MMPs) have been implicated in numerous tissue-remodeling processes. The finding that mice deficient in collagenase-2 (MMP-8) are more susceptible to develop skin cancer, prompted us to investigate the role of this protease in cutaneous wound healing. We have observed a significant delay in wound closure in MMP8-/- mice and an altered inflammatory response in their wounds, with a delay of neutrophil infiltration during the first days and a persistent inflammation at later time points. These changes were accompanied by alterations in the TGF-beta1 signaling pathway and by an apoptosis defect in MMP8-/- mice. The delay in wound healing observed in MMP8-/- mice was rescued by bone marrow transplantation from wild-type mice. Analysis of other MMPs showed that MMP8-/- mice had a significant increase in the expression of MMP-9, suggesting that both proteases might act coordinately in this process. This possibility was further supported by the novel finding that MMP-8 and MMP-9 form specific complexes in vivo. Taken together, these data indicate that MMP-8 participates in wound repair by contributing to the resolution of inflammation and open the possibility to develop new strategies for treating wound healing defects.
